QuokkaWiki Themes

QuokkaWiki is designed to be easily themable by following these steps:

  1. Go to the templates directory in QuokkaWiki.
  2. Make a copy of the default/ directory and default.html file. (For the rest of this document, we'll imagine you have named theme newtheme/ and newtheme.html.
  3. Edit conf/prefs.module and change template_name to "newtheme" (you are now using the new theme files).
  4. Open newtheme.html and look for tags that look like this: {WIKI_TITLE}. These are placeholders for QuokkaWiki content, and are the only thing that need to be preserved in the page. Any other HTML elements can be modified, added or removed.
  5. Open newtheme/style.css and modify CSS rules as appropriate.
